I made a double batch of EdWort's Haus Pale, and both of the airlocks blew off violently! My closet is COVERED in Krausen/hops... oh, and I even used foam control. maybe has something to do with the fact that it was 101 degrees outside today! I tried to rig the bung with a blow off tube and stick it back in, I ended up looking like the priest from the exorcist... my girl is pissed....

good times

If you want to make beer then you need to cool it somehow or else.

Hops sting when you get them in your eyes. Well.... so I've heard.

Seriously, get pics.

Everyone who brews blows one up sooner or later. I had a lid blow clean off a coffee stout. The krausen from that looked like... well... and it was all up the bathroom wall and on the curtains over my wife's garden tub. I wish I had photos. Just sitting around the house and you hear a low hollow "thwump" noise. 10 seconds later it dawns on you what it might be and you go running in fear. Not fear of the mess, but fear that your batch might get contaminated!

Then of course I just did a hefe (paulaner clone) with a hefty starter and put it in the 6.5 carboy with a fat blowoff and only got maybe 2 inches of krausen.

The beer knows you aren't watching and throws a party!

Pics + a video of the SWMBO's rant would be cool.
